Gorgeous Orange Maxi Dress

Gorgeous Orange Maxi Dress

Happy Monday to you! I hope everyone had a pretty wonderful weekend. Before I get started on mine, I just want to give a HUGE Happy Birthday to my favorite entertainer ever, George Micheal! His birthday was yesterday and he would have turned 54. This very beautiful and talented man passed away on Christmas last year. He will forever be in my heart and mind.

I had a really wonderful weekend. I attended the BlogHer 2017 conference this past weekend (Wed-Sun) in Orlando, FL and had the greatest time! There was so much I learned in reference to blogging and Facebook and made lots of new blogger friends. I also spent LOTS of time at the pool and boy was it HOT!! I took these photos before I hunkered down at the pool. You’ll see how much darker I am in a later post. I took the kiddos with me and they had the best time. G. Boo met on Friday after spending a week in Amsterdam. Bless his heart; he was on Amsterdam’s time zone and was so super tired. But he was a true trooper…he spent lots of time with the kids, even with our nanny/friend there.

I wore this dress on Day One of the conference. Read these words: I am so in love with this dress!!! When I tell you I felt really beautiful in it, I am not kidding. Trust me, this doesn’t happen often!!! I got SOOOO many compliments on the dress but especially this purse. I’d seen so many bloggers with this handbag previously. When I got around to ordering it, wouldn’t you know they were out of stock. Oh course right?!? Eventually, I later got an email stating they were available again. This time I didn’t mess around with ordering it! Everyone LOVED this handbag as much as I do. This entire ensemble is one of my favorites and I’m sure it will make my top end-of-the-year favorites!

G. Boo and I will be headed to Amsterdam (originally Italy) and Greece towards the end of the year and this dress and purse will definitely be traveling with us. But I really said this to say I may not post as much as I normally do while on vaca. But once we return, I will play catch up…starting with memories from our vacation.

    The orange maxi dress is simple and bold. Have you tried taking photos in natural lighting (outdoors)? I think it will look even more radiant and gorgeous!
